The Fountain of Truth

What would you trade for eternal life and to serve the cold dish of revenge? What if you could trade anything, even things that don’t belong to you? Would you do it? A traveler found himself presented with such an opportunity. He ventured into the belly of the beast to sip from a mythical fountain. Some might say he traded nothing of value, while others might think he traded something essential. You be the judge.


The Lord of Cinder

In the ethereal halls of a long-collapsed kingdom, there remains a cursed king. His mere existence is a blight upon the land, preventing death from claiming life and cursing the dead to forever wander in misery.

Fate brought us together so that I may lay waste to his life and return the Lord of Cinder to the ashes from whence he came.


A Short Survey

Doctor Franklin B. Duhl was a surveyor with the national forestry department. During a routine, short survey, he discovered something horrendous and inadvertently stumbled into what some would describe as a conspiracy, a cover-up of epic proportions.

Smoking Gun

A young man yearns for freedom, despite having everything he’s ever wanted: a dream career, a dream life and a nightmarish adventure. Bradley B. Gunn, or BB Gunn, is about to discover that there are more things between heaven and earth than dreamt of in his own philosophy; however, as a cop patrolling the dream beat, that isn’t always a bad thing.


Hands

The following are sound clips from a voice diary found by Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (or the Montreal Police Force). The victim was a woman suffering from night terrors, emotional and psychological issues. Her roommate said she had been acting weird ever since the most recent snowstorm hit Mount Royal. Read the transcript at your own risk.


The Birth of Ted

Theodore Robert Bundy kidnapped, raped, and murdered numerous young women and girls during the 1970s and possibly earlier. After more than a decade of denials, he confessed to 30 homicides that he committed in seven states between 1974 and 1978 right before his execution in 1989. The true number of victims is believed to be higher.

What was his motive? Some say it was his upbringing. Some say he was wicked from the beginning. Curious as to how Ted actually came to be?

Find out in this gripping short from the Annals of Caleb.


The Tank

Snakes aren’t your typical domestic pet. When Konnel agrees to watch Fangs, his friend’s pet snake, he gets a surprising lesson in how to care for it.
